I feel sure that this is probably first on most Amazon biologists’ lists, our incredible pink dolphins. We don’t have to worry about protecting them poachers, because the river people rarely hunt them. They believe that the pink dolphins possess extraordinary power. One example: If a young woman becomes pregnant, and the father is unknown, the pregnancy is often blamed on a nocturnal liaison with a pink dolphin . . . or as we call them . . . a boto. The local people believe that the dolphin has lured the lady into the water for illicit porpoises.
